Got our S2S car!

October 24, 2013 Posted by JThw8

All that shopping for THOTC’s vintage Plymouth banger got my car shopping juices flowing.  I knew I’d need a decent, comfortable, yet disposable car to marshal the S2S event next year.  Plus it’s shaping up to be a bad winter in the northeast so I wanted to park my DD and get something else to bear the pains of the salted roads.

I had been shopping used police cars when a forum member on Grassroots Motorsports mentioned they were searching for a Crown Victoria Sport model.  I had no idea such a thing existed but in my police package Crown Vic searches a *really* cheap Sport came up.  I agreed to go check it out for the GRM member and what I found was not the car he was looking for but the perfect, low cost, high luxury, high reliability car we needed to run S2S.

She’s got some blemishes and has lived in the northeast all her life but mechanically she’s pretty sound.  I will, as is standard procedure around here, go through the brakes, new pads and rotors up front are definitely needed.  And it looks like I’ll need to swap out a tie rod end but so far every thing else looks good.  The sport model has some really comfy leather bucket seats and a nice console shifter instead of the usual column shifter.

I’m flying home at the end of S2S so if this car appeals to you let me know and maybe we can make a deal in Vegas 😉
